Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela says that “a win is a win” as Kaizer Chiefs edged Mpumalanga Black Aces in a Absa Premiership encounter.

Chiefs beat Aces for the second time in three days as a first-half header by Camaldine Abraw gave Amakhosi a 1-0 win.

According to KickOff, Komphela said the hard fought victory should be a source of inspiration.

“A win is a win and we look at it as inspiration," said the Amakhosi coach.

“There are areas we know we could have done better and you go there [to address the players] and say this should have been done this way, but what is more important is that when you look at the log there are three more points for us.

“That’s more important, even though you don’t want to condone a win that is ‘naked’.”

The Glamour Boys dominated possession early in the game but did not create any clear-cut scoring opportunities that tested the Aces defence.

All Chiefs' interplay was finally rewarded when Abraw headed in George Lebese cross to put the Amakhosi ahead just after the half hour mark.

Aces were much better in the second period and gave Itumeleng Khune in the Chiefs goal some nervy moments but the home team hung on to claim the victory.
